Tuna steak salad bento

image

I grilled a tuna steak with salt and pepper and served it on a bed of mixed baby salad leaves and topped it with the last of the salsa I made for the Tilapia dish. A little silicone cup of Greek yogurt in the centre completes my bento. I also took some strawberries with me and carrots. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, a side box would really come in handy.

Tilapia bento

Oh my, oh my was this a delicious bento.  I cannot wait to have this again. Using a recipe from Shape magazine as a guideline,  I sauteed Tilapia fillets in lime juice, chili and cumin,  then I topped it with a salsa made from corn, cucumber, onion, avocado and cilantro (coriander). The flavour was simply wonderful. I was a bit concerned about the juices leaking through to the rest of the food, so I made a little baran out of foil and also placed a carrot in there.  On the other side is a peeled satsuma and some strawberries. Our strawberry season hasn’t started yet,  but these were still very nice.

I also wanted to share with you, what has been the majority of my breakfasts the last couple of weeks. It’s absolutely delicious, healthy, but the best part about it, is that it tastes decadent, so I feel like I’m starting my day off with a treat,  and it means I don’t crave candy as much later on.

To make this smoothie, I’ve blended ice, Greek yogurt, oats, frozen mango and mixed berries and orange and lime juice. I tried putting milk in it one time instead of juice, but I wasn’t a fan of the flavour that produced.

What are you starting your day with?
Happy weekend everyone

Prawn salad bento

For this bento,  I simply sauteed some king prawns in tomatoes and onions with bay seasoning. I’ve added a side of a simple mixed leaf salad with red peppers,  and a cup of grapes.  I also think I took rice cakes , but they don’t fit in any bento box I own.
Here’s a little bit of a bento backlog. I decided not to give it, it’s own post because it’s nearly identical to one of my other bentos.

The same bulgar wheat salad,  with grapes and almonds. Absolutely loving being healthy right now. X

Roasted chicken bento

Simple bento of a roasted chicken thigh,  no skin,  sliced cucumber,  red pepper, and a cup of sweetcorn.  I also took fruit and rice cakes. I’m keeping my healthy eating up these days and have so far lost 7lbs!

Bulgar Wheat salad bento

Back to healthy eating! Or trying to anyway.  Bulgar wheat and cous cous salad with steak pieces, pepper, cucumber, tomato,  and avocado, with a lemon juice and olive oil dressing.  Side of celery with peanut butter.  I also took a satsuma and an apple.  The steak pieces were a little salty for me, but it was still quite good.
